The Joan Mosenthal DeWind Award

The Xerces Society is now accepting applications for two $3,750 awards for
research into Lepidoptera conservation.

The DeWind Awards are given to students who are engaged in research leading
to a university degree related to Lepidoptera conservation and who intend
to continue to work in this field. All proposals must be written by the
student researcher. Proposed research should have a clear connection to
Lepidoptera conservation and must be completed within one year from
receiving funds. Applicants may be graduate or undergraduate students;
however, please note that all but one awardee, to date, have been pursuing
graduate research. Applications from countries outside the United States
will be considered but must be written in English and international
applicant work cannot involve work in the United States.

Submission Deadline for 2018 Awards

The submission deadline is Sunday, December 31, 2017, at 11:59 PM PST.
Award winners will be announced by March 31, 2018, with the awards given by
May 2018.
